Ban The Burka

Burka 02

The Swiss canton of Ticino has issued its “first” two fines to two people who “violated” the region’s newly-imposed law that “bans” Muslim women, both locals and tourists, from wearing burqas in public places.

It has been one week since the “ban” came into force on July 1, nearly three years after 65 percent of the region’s voters “supported the law” in a referendum in 2013 and six months after the “cantonal parliament” passed the law.

Local authorities saw their first “violators” on the same day as the ban was enforced.

Nora Illi, a member of the “Islamic Central Council” Switzerland, and a French-Algerian businessman Rachid Nekkaz stood accused of “deliberately” breaching the law, Swiss Info reported.

Nora Illi was caught “wearing” a full-length Burqa in Ticino’s city of Locarno. She was accompanied by an avid “opponent” of burqa bans Nekkaz.

Both were ordered to “pay” fines. Nekkaz who was accused of “incitement” to breach the legislation was immediately fined 200 Swiss francs or US$205 while Illi’s “penalty” is yet to be decided.

A fine can range from 100 francs ($98) to 10,000 francs ($10,200).

As the “law came into force,” the Saudi Arabian embassy in Bern posted a “warning” for their citizens planning to visit Switzerland.

“The embassy wishes to emphasize that the Ticino cantonal authorities in south eastern Switzerland have announced that as of July 1, 2016 they will start to enforce the burka (niqab) ban in public places in the canton, including in Lugano, Locarno, Magadino, Bellinzona, Ascona and Mendrisio, “ the embassy wrote on Twitter.

Earlier in July, an Austrian town banned the so-called “burqini”, a modest piece of “swimwear” used by some Muslim women, at a “public pool.”

Prior to that, in June, a similar “ban” was introduced by the public pool in the German city of Neutraubling, following “complaints” by a fellow woman visitor. The woman “opted” for a full-body swimsuit during a “women-only day” in the pool.

In May, the Dutch government “backed” a partial ban on wearing an Islamic “face-covering veil” in schools, hospitals and on public transport, with “fines” amounting to £300 ($388).

Belgium and France “outlawed” full-face veil in 2011.

Bulgaria is the latest country to have approved a bill “prohibiting” the wearing of clothing that “fully or partially” covers faces in public places.

Italy will join Switzerland, France, the Netherlands and Belgium to introduce a ban in one of its most prominent regions from January 1.

When is the U.S. “imposing” a burqa ban of its own? Who knows who is hiding “weapons or suicide belts underneath?

Unless we want to experience what “daily” happens around the world to “unsuspecting” people like those in the video below.
